Nocturia and Sleep Apnea

2

People who experience nocturia, or a frequent need to urinate at night, are often at an increased risk for developing sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a condition that causes people to stop breathing momentarily during sleep, which can lead to a number of health problems.

If you are experiencing nocturia and have not been formally screened for sleep apnea, you must speak with your doctor. There are a variety of treatments available for sleep apnea, so getting diagnosed and treated as soon as possible is the best way to protect your health.

What Is Nocturia? 

Nocturia is a condition that causes people to need to urinate at night. This condition can disrupt sleep and lead to tiredness during the day. See a doctor if you are experiencing symptoms of nocturia, as it could be a sign of sleep apnea or another underlying health condition.

 Diagnosing Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is typically diagnosed with a sleep study, during which your sleep will be monitored overnight. This test can help identify whether you have sleep apnea and its severity.

 What Are the Risks of Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea is a serious condition that can lead to several health problems. These include high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, and obesity. If you have sleep apnea, getting treated as soon as possible is important to reduce your risk of these complications.

 The Link Between Nocturia and Sleep Apnea

There is a strong link between sleep apnea and nocturia, as sleep apnea can cause you to wake up frequently at night. This pattern can lead to sleep deprivation, worsening symptoms for both. Treating sleep apnea can help to reduce the frequency of nocturia.

Epigenetic Orthodontics

Epigenetic Orthodontics can open and protect the airway enhancing breathing both during sleep and awake activities.

Dr. Buck practices a philosophy that integrates airway into all diagnosis and treatments. Dentistry has traditionally not considered the airway when planning dental treatments. Fortunately, today there is a rapidly growing movement that now recognizes how dentistry can have an impact on the airway which affects breathing during sleep. If dental treatments, including TMJ, orthopedic and orthodontics are well planned the result can be that the airway is protected or even enhanced. There is a clear link between underdeveloped and retruded jaws together with narrow dental arches that puts a patient at risk for sleep breathing disorders.

Airway Improvement

WOW! A 54% decrease in forward head posture; 164% increase in the antero-posterior size of the airway; 176% increase in the lateral size of the airway all from epigenetically centered jaw development orthopedics. This is the future of orthodontics!​
